Hello, we are Ms. Megan and Ms. Amanda, the teachers at North Glenora Playschool. We consider ourselves energetic teachers who put play first every day. We believe that play is the work of young children, not just a break from more important tasks. Plentiful opportunities for movement, to be creative, to build and become are vital to children's development. Children need to experience as much as they can first hand and be supported by adults to make new discoveries and develop a passion for life long exploration and learning. We are excited to return this year and grow with you all!
Notes from Ms. Megan - I am currently studying at the UofA to finish my elementary education bachelor's degree, which I have 3 years under my belt so far. I have been the assistant teacher for a year and a half at North Glenora Playschool. Fun fact about me, I was born in Canada, but I've lived across the world, in Houston, Texas and Dubai, UAE.
I am very passionate about early childhood development and education, and I have loved caring for children ever since I can remember. People would describe me as kind-hearted, patient, and bubbly.
Notes from Ms. Amanda - I have a diploma in Early Childhood Development from Grant MacEwan University and 19 years experience working with children. This will be my second year as head teacher at North Glenora Playschool but my fifth year spent in the program overall. In my career I have worked in daycare, taught preschool, as well as been an educational assistant. I find working with children very rewarding and enjoy teaching playschool very much.
A little about me, I love camping and being outdoors. I enjoy running, watching my boys play sports, and spending time with my family.
